The Main Thing

Luke Jones

“The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.” Psalm 116:6

It’s important to keep the main thing the main thing. Our focus must be on Jesus, always. If we lose our focus, we lose our purpose. Here are a few things to consider about staying focused.

1. Keep Jesus at the Center. 
From the day to day tasks to the big ticket items – everything should be about Jesus. In the midst of life, keeping our attention on Him is crucial. Focusing on anything or anyone else will only distract.

2. Have a Spirit of Thankfulness.
Thankfulness is a catalyst for a life full of God. Being full of gratitude and with “thank you’s” to others and to God will help us realize that what we are a part of is not dependent on ourselves, but is accomplished through Jesus.

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Col 3:15-17, NIV)

3. When in Doubt. Simplify. 
One of the best ways to keep focused, is to keep life simple. Too many things can complicate the main objective. Psalm 116:6 says, “The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.” The K.I.S.S concept comes into play here, remember to Keep-It-Simple…Sam.

4. Seek Jesus – Personally.
The Word promises us that the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord. We can take that promise to the bank by continuing to seek Him, knowing that He will lead us. A life that is focused on Jesus will lead to a life of focus and determination.

So today, why not recalibrate your focus on Jesus and keep the main thing the main thing. You will be happy you did. After all, isn't life better when it's all about Him? 

Say It: "Father, I choose to focus my heart and my life on You. I know that the steps of a good man are ordered by You. I ask You to help me remain focused on You so that my steps are in sync with Your plan! Thank You for leading me and bringing me close to Your heart. I love You. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
